The Song Between Our Stars: Open Call for Artists and Writers

Share

Eligibility:

2020.

Can’t say much about it directly for it all feels flat. The analyses about it will come. The poetry and stories about it will arrive. Later.

Now we are here. We live it, rage it, map it, avoid it, pawn it, mourn it, teach it.

Often there is not enough to create. And still somehow, creation happens. As a coping mechanism. Alternate media as rebellion. As a connecting mechanism. As an instrument of solitude. As a funnel for fear or a bucket for hope.

It’s too much for any one person.

OPEN CALL: work created in 2020, on any subject.

Written: Essay, poetry, short fiction, non-fiction up to 1200 words
Visual: Photography, digital artwork, photo/scan of other media. Full color, or b/w, No watermarks please. High res (300 dpi minimum)
Timing: created after 1 January 2020, created before 31 December 2020, Entries accepted until 31 January 2021, PDF, PNG, or JPG

Queer Body Horror

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Deriving from the idea of Judith Butler's unfulfilled promise of writing about “the place of sharp machines” and “the technology of the knife in debates about intersexuality and transsexuality alike,” the publication "Queer Body Horror" aims to "force an encounter with the real of the biological body and the difference it introduces into the world, the real of the sexed body, that exceeds the being of the phenomenological lived body and the discursive body, while somehow still being intertwined with these other two bodies...". To "force encounters with real and nonhuman objects and actors that cannot be reduced to correlates of human thought, language, perception, or use but that have to be approached in their own autonomous being to properly be thought": a horrifying thought, so to say. The publication argues and explores the validity of the hypothesis that there is neither Object-oriented Ontology nor Speculative Realism without Queer Theory. As such, the idea of 'Queer Body Horror' that Throne Room would love to see you explore doesn't necessarily describe the state of a body, but rather deals with the conditions it faces. It reflects on the method according to which queer space is being created in normative systems, what performative practices a queer body can and needs to adhere to in order to function therein, or to dream up a utopian or nightmarish scenario about queer bodies and "sharp machines".
